Used to fit

This was my first Ewa Michalak that I purchased from SFYS.com in Toronto a couple months back. : ) I never wrote a review of this bra, but I'm writing one now so people can learn from my mistake. In my haste, I quickly took the tags off and washed the bra, thinking that it fit after just a quick try on. The next day, I realized that I needed one cup larger - it was okay on my smaller side, but on my left side, it was giving an "unhappy boob" profile. Like, I was fitting into the cup on my larger side, but I was kind of angled down. Instead of being supported and uplifted, it looked like I was just squishing myself into the cup on that side. Also, I was stressing the fabric to the max!

Soooo, learn from my mistake, people! For those newbs to ABTF: carefully evaluate. Scoop & swoop. Don't get so caught up in the excitement of getting the bra that you want in the mail that you overlook things.

I think you can notice in this picture some internal quadboob (if that even is a phrase...) https://www.bratabase.com/picture/dpust/ When I went up one cup size, I no longer had that problem and the cups fit much better : )

    Too bad I did the same thing with the same damn bra LOL! In cup quadding as I call it and totally didn’t assess fit properly before taking tags off. I have learned my lesson too!

    Oh man I feel this in my soul lol. Same thing happened to me when I purchased the BM Wenecja and BM Nugatowy in 65GG. Was all “Yay” then “whhhhyyyyyyy”. Tho I’m glad I held onto them since they got me through the Covid lockdown weight gain lolz. But now that I’m back in all my 65G’s I’m glaring at them and just see $$ signs and think about two other bras that could be sitting in my collection instead of them.

    Happy2BraShop , I actually can get away with wearing it, although one size too small in the cup, it's also one size too large in the band. I was wearing it yesterday! although it's more of like a "Saturday bra" as it just doesn't offer the same support as having the correct band size. I heart the colours of this bra so much.
    Although I *kind of* see why some people size up in the band in Ewa.

    Happy2BraShop , I guess I can see how - if you have been wearing Ewa Michalak BM for years, you would want to branch out and try other styles of EM. But for me, I'm just so happy that I found a bra that works for me (both Polish brands EM and Comexim) that I don't want to risk trying new styles in EM, at this point. But I get where you're coming from...

  • I kept mine too because I just found out the size up doesn’t fit :( ah well, it fits other than the in cup quadding...
